Lambussie/Karni District faces development challenges


 Lambussie, Jan. 3, GNA – A traditional ruler in the Lambussie-Karni District of the Upper West Region, expressed worry that the area was lagging behind in terms of development.
      Kuoru Alhaji Iddrisu Bamie Yesseh III, Paramount Chief of Lambussie,  said the district needed adequate accommodation for workers, improved agriculture, education and health facilities and general infrastructural development.
     He  raised the concern at the celebration of the Mifele-Gbero festival by the chiefs and people of Lambussie Traditional Area,  at the weekend.
      The festival is to thank God and the ancestors for blessing and protecting the people last year.
     Kuoru Yesseh appealed to Government to rehabilitate irrigation dams in the area and to subsidise the price of fertilizer to promote agriculture.
     On health, the paramount chief, appealed to Government to provide Information and Communication Technology equipment  for health facilities and to repair roads in the district.
     Kuoru Yesseh called for the establishment of a technical and vocational school in the district, to absorb the many junior high school students who failed to gain admission to  senior high schools.
     He said: “A parcel of land for such a project is ready and we are waiting on government to come and execute the project for us”.
     Kuoru Yesseh expressed disappointment at the adulteration of Ghanaian culture and said: “Many of our youth are caught in the act of foreign behaviours and re-associating themselves with negative ways of living.
     “If we do not take steps to arrest the growing gap between the old and the new cultures, the very foundation of our heritage will be shaken”.
     Mr. Clement B. Benin, Lambussie/Karni District Chief Executive, expressed dismay that the district was last on the region’s Basic Education Certificate Examination performance table.
